About Company

Leoné MusicReader is a privately held company based in Borne, The Netherlands. We offer innovative digital sheet music software to musicians worldwide. Together with this program the company offers the necessary hardware to supplement the software.

Leoné MusicReader started research in 2002 and launched its first product in 2008. The company also has ongoing research and development efforts to be able to offer musicians state-of-the-art software.



MusicReader was originally an idea of Marco Leoné, currently CEO of Leoné MusicReader B.V.
He started researching the possibilities of MusicReader during the first year of his study Telematics at the University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands). With the idea of MusicReader Marco participated in New Venture 2003, a competition for innovative business plans. The idea of MusicReader was nominated in the first round of this competition.
In that same year the business plan was also awarded “Best Business Plan” in the Minor Entrepreneurship of the University of Twente.  
In 2004 Marco completed his Bachelor assignment Telematics on the usage of Tablet PCs in orchestras and ensembles. Following this assignment he successfully tested a MusicReader prototype in March 2005, together with students of the Minor Music at the Enschede School of Music. This test resulted in multiple publications in the Dutch media.             
In 2007 Marco redesigned MusicReader during his Master Assignment, which was targeted on communication and user interface. In August 2007 the complete design was successfully used by a professional and amateur ensemble during multiple rehearsals and a public performance. Also this test got a lot of coverage in both the Dutch and international media. After this test Marco decided to go public with the software.  
The first public version was launched in February 2008 .
